Living Earth (Life and Habitats)

Theme Convenors
Martin van Kranendonk, University of New South Wales
Gregg Webb, University of Queensland


Life has fundamentally influenced the development of the Earth, making it unique with respect to its planetary neighbours. The Living Earth theme will investigate:

  • The evolution of life as witnessed in the fossil record;
  • Consider novel methods to supplement traditional palaeontological approaches;
  • Investigate the major events in the evolution of life, the hydrosphere and atmosphere; and
  • Draw contrasts and comparisons with other planets.
